After Seeing Son Of Our Beloved Bushwick Bill, Fans Almost Thought They Were Seeing Double
Meet Bushwick Bill’s Son/Rapper, Yung Knxw…
Introducing Yung Knxw (YK), also known as Bushwick’s son! Nah, you’re not seeing double, you’re seeing the 23 year old offspring of a rap legend, who’s following in his father’s footsteps.
As you can see, he looks like Bushwick spit him out. The main difference is their height. Bushwick made history as the first little person ever to become a multiplatinum selling rap artist.
Although Bushwick’s son, YK, doesn’t seem to technically be a little person, he is shorter than average, which in my opinion helps to make him stand out in an industry where artists are always searching for unique identity.
The other cool thing about Yung Knxw is that, most people have no clue he’s Bushwick’s son. Why? Because YK prides himself off the fact that he’s been grindin’ and building his career without leaning on his Father’s fame. He’s been releasing music for the past few years and is signed to the same record label as The Geto Boys, Rap-A-Lot Records…
Even though Yung Knxw doesn’t like to use his Dad’s name as a crutch, he still has major respect for the legacy Bushwick built and oftentimes pays homage to him online. They also performed together at times. How cool is that, right?!!
Unknown Facts About The Late Bushwick Bill
1. Scarface revealed that Bushwick Bill at just 21/22 years old, had an incredible business savvy. At that age, prior to becoming a rapper, he’d already owned a few successful car lots in their hometown of Houston, TX.
2. Willie D told Vlad TV that he was the one who came up with the idea to have Bushwick Bill in The Geto Boys, after their original group member, Jukebox, quit. Prior to that, Bushwick was just their homeie and occasional hype-man, with zero rap skills. When Willie D suggested to Scarface and Rap-A-Lot Records owner, J. Prince, that Bushwick join the group, he got laughed at because no one thought Bill was capable…until Willie D wrote his rhymes and Bushwick delivered them with precision…and history was birthed.
We will always love Bushwick Bill for being the true warrior and pioneer that he was. He was a brave brotha, who was never afraid to speak his mind. May he rest in peace and power.
Our continued condolences to his son and the rest of his family.
